Simple Guidelines.

Using the words “park & peace” and write a tanka poem.

Tanka poetry consists of five units, usually with the following pattern of    5-7-5-7-7 which is syllables.

The first three lines (5/7/5) are the upper phase. This upper stage is where you create an image in your reader’s mind.

The last two lines (7/7) of a Tanka poem are called the lower phase.  The final two lines should express the poet’s ideas about the image that was created in the three lines above.

You can use the picture above, your own or no picture at all.

Copy and paste the link of your finished tanka in the comments below. I will acknowledge them the following week, also share on social networks.

My tanka poem  – using the words “park & peace”.

magic whisperings
rustling through the silent park
feelings of peer pressures gone
trees give peace to the body

  1. Thanks for the heads up, can’t wait to get started. For I do, a tanka reply on yours

    those times spent seeking…
    peace… as in comfort
    whispers… parks reveal…
    I too sit and listen
    natures voices… such a thrill

    Thanks again Elsie
